My wife and I ate lunch here on the recommendation of our B&B host. The prosciutto ham was to die for. We shared a platter and my wife who is almost a vegetarian ate her full share and told me if I could find the same quality in the USA she would buy it in a heart beat. Our mains... More

What a fantastic restaurant a small menu but wow it is wonderful and very reasonably prices. The service is great and friendly. Unfortunately the day that I was there it was wet so we could not sit out on the terrace and enjoy the sensational views.

After reading the reviews, we decided to try. It is not easy to find, tucked away 3 or 4 streets away from the city center. We were there for dinner and it was nearly empty. In fact, we were the only people eating outside, where the view is very nice overlooking the area. The menu is very simple but, mostly... More

Fabulous food, comfortable place, fantastic wine list. All the food is freshly cooked when ordered so not a place to go if you're in a hurry. But for a leisurely lunch with first class food in wonderful surroundings, make sure it's on your list !

Delicious food, simple as it should be. Big portions and very friendly service. Beautiful terrace and ancient inside. Nice for kids also. Wine per glass for 2 euro! With a lot of choise. Visited by local people also! Nice elevated view on the surrondings and at night view to Malpensa.

I rated this place very good due to it being a complete package! I didn't drink any of their wines, which many people have praised, but the food, which was limited (only two page menu, which sometimes can be a better, and it was the lunch menu!) was of a high quality. We were seated outside on the lovely large... More

In this typical restaurant in the tiny village of Oleggio they offer a magnificent buffet of starters which includes just about everything you may wish. Then you can order the main a la carte. I found the choice of the starters great but the food is not "top notch" but just average. As main we tried a risotto and a... More
